Ok, question to past cruisers who may have done this. I am considering booking beachfront hotels for both stops on the 2005 Western cruise we have. Has anyone else done this? If you have where did you stay and what island? Where you happy? What time were you able to check in? Mabye it seems stupid to pay for a nights stay when only using several hours of spent money, but it creates a plesant island beach day with a room for "at your convience" nap/rest/shower/B-Room/ete.
